Did I ever tell you about the time - 4th of July edition

So a few years ago (like 6) the hubs and I decided to go to Boston and see the 4th of July fireworks on the Charles river.

Well here's what happened we kayaked (in our trusty inflatable kayaks) for an hour to the place where we were going to watch the boston pops and the fireworks and were just deciding where to "park" when a was hit (for lack of a better phrase) by a drunk pontoon boat driver. Hubs was on the opposite side of the pontoon and its front hit my shoulder and pushed me (and my kayak) quite a few feet until a nice guy in a canoe grabbed the front of my kayak and pulled me out of the pontoons path. I was a shaky mess. Hubs just laughed and laughed!  (That's because he wasn't hit by a boat) 
We stayed and watched the fireworks with my new bff the canoe owner but I flat out refused to kayak back! We deflated our boats and took a cab back to our car...
I don't think I've kayaked since! I should get in that boat again, in our nice safe lake!
Moral of the story. Don't be in a kayak on the biggest drinking holiday of the year! 

Do you have a fun 4th of July story?
